Moscow has always been one of my dreams. To see the Red Square and the Saint Basil’s Cathedral. And Kremlin which my dad always tells me about. To see all the places where he has been during his student’s years as well. It’s always interesting to know about the history of the place and then to look for the pictures. And then how amazing it is to say „yay, I’ve been there“, I’ve seen exactly this, been standing next to that and ate at this place. Always fulfills me inside that I have been able to travel like that. So dad, here I am!
Red Square as a central square of Moscow also known as the second largest square in the world after the Tiananmen Square in Beijing (getting there sooner than I think). Main tourist attraction and a hearth and soul of Russia is surrounded by Kremlin, Lenin’s Mausoleum, the State History Museum and Saint Basil’s Cathedral (saw them all!). It has its origin from the pigment of the surrounding bricks. Red Square has been a part of the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Saint Basil’s Cathedral or Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed is a church located on the Red Square, now being a museum. It contains eight churches that surround the ninth, central church. It is shaped as a flame of a bonfire that reaches to the sky. Very colorful, with different patterns and shapes so unique to Russian architecture. Ultimate symbol of Russia, you simply cannot overlook it. Built by tsar Ivan the Terrible, also part of the UNESCO now.
Kremlin or Moskovskiy Kreml as the „fortress inside a city“ includes four cathedrals, five palaces and it is surrounded by Kremlin Wall with Kremlin towers. It is the official residence of the President.
Somebody smart once said „You can’t buy happiness but you can buy a plane ticket and that’s kind of the same thing“. Well, I couldn’t agree more. #lifeofatraveler
